BUFFALO, N.Y. — Fans continue to share their prayers for Pancho Billa while he battles cancer. 

Ezra Castro, 39, is currently in Hospice care for cancer that began with a mass around his spine. It spread into other organs including his liver and lungs.

His girlfriend, Veronica Borjon, spoke to 2 On Your Side's Joshua Robinson Monday morning. She says doctors want to keep Castro comfortable, as he is having trouble breathing, eating and speaking. 

Fans started a petition on Change.org to try and convince the Buffalo Bills to sign Castro to a one-day contract.

By Monday morning, the petition surpassed its original goal of 5,000 signatures.  They have increased the goal to 10,000 now.
